Half Moon Bay has become synonymous with the spooky days of Halloween. From Half Moon Bay’s annual Art & Pumpkin Festival to the Giant Pumpkin Weigh off to a multitude of the local area pumpkin patches and farms, you can get your gourd on dunning mid September through the end of October. And if the Halloween festivities weren’t enough, Half Moon Bay gets some of its best weather during September and October. Warm days and cool nights make it perfect for beach combing, nature walks or just taking in the ocean views from one of the areas bars and restaurants.
